Blu-ray Broken Embraces [Blu-ray] Write Review for Blu-ray Broken Embraces [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray 6307213), Blu-ray Broken Embraces [Blu-ray] Not Yet Rated

"[T]horoughly engrossing....Rodrigo Prieto's cinematography is exquisite from the volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote to the many finely appointed interiors."
Hollywood Reporter

3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he film's full of fine performances -- not least Cruz....There's much to enjoy here..."
Total Film

"It's hot-blooded, haunting and totally embraceable."
Rolling Stone

"As a film that pays tribute to vintage '50s Hollywood, BROKEN EMBRACES is a visual delight."
USA Today

"[A] film that serves as a love letter to the movies, and a demonstration of the medium's mysterious power....Mr. Almodovar always loves to play games, thicken textures, keeps us enthralled by keeping us guessing."
Wall Street Journal

3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Cruz exudes a sensual aura of mystery that holds you spellbound."
Rolling Stone

"The visual and aural textures are lush and sensual, as we've come to expect from Mr. Almodovar, and yet the rich colors and deep sonorities somehow illuminate an unusually austere emotional terrain."
New York Times

"BROKEN EMBRACES welds Douglas Sirk melodrama to the most gracefully unsettling elements of Alfred Hitchcock, wrapping both in the stylish, hushed elegance that's become Almodovar's trademark since his mid-'90s reinvention." -- Grade: A-
A.V. Club

"A vibrant, mature love letter to the making of movies, the meaning of movies, and the dark-eyed muse Penelope Cruz..." -- Grade: A-
Entertainment Weekly

4 stars out of 5 -- "[R]avishing to watch. It's a sheer indulgence for Almodvar and just as indulgent for his fans."
Box Office

"The writer-director is up to his old tricks, creating an onion of an experience -- a movie within a movie within a movie, irony in each layer, poignancy that stings and whimsy that bites."
Los Angeles Times

4 stars out of 4 -- "BROKEN EMBRACES is a voluptuary of a film, drunk on primary colors, caressing Penelope Cruz, using the devices of Hitchcock to distract us with surfaces while the sinister uncoils beneath."
Chicago Sun-Times

Included in Chicago Sun-Times's "The Best Foreign Films Of 2009" -- "Dripping with primary colors, especially red, this is the year's most sumptuous film."
Chicago Sun-Times

"This is Cruz and Almodovar's fourth movie together, and it's a dizzyingly intricate genre-bender that expands upon the Spanish auteur's recurring obsession with movie love..."
Washington Post

3 stars out of 5 -- "The film takes in an opulently shot interlude on Lanzarote, as well as nods to Hitchcock...Warhol's paintings and Almodovar's own early style."
